It’s long overdue I say something about my favorite hotel in Wiesbaden, Germany, the “Radisson Blue Schwarzer Bock Hotel”. Before Radisson bought it, it was simply called “Hotel Schwarzer Bock”. I have stayed here many times over the years when visiting my German family and it never disappointed me.
The hotel is located in the centre of the city, at the beginning of large a pedestrian zone, and is just around the corner from sites like the Kurhaus (opera house) it’s beautiful large park, the State Theatre, the Casino and more. One of my favorite activities is to go downstairs and walk all over town sightseeing, shopping, have breakfast/lunch or a cup of coffee and a piece of that great German cake at one of the oldest established Café’s, “Der Maldaner”, which celebrated it’s 150 year anniversary a year or so ago. Sitting at one of their sidewalk tables and talking with the locals is a lot of fun and gives inside into their life’s. Many speak English well.
I also love their Spa, the breakfast bar offering everything my little heart desires and the excellent, personal and very friendly service by their personnel.
When ready to go home to the States, I usually take a taxi to the Frankfurt airport for the hotel’s special pre-arranged flat fee of €38.00.

I was born and raised in Wiesbaden. If you want some local info, send me an email and I gladly tell you all I know. Please put “Wiesbaden” in the reference box.
